girl of eighteen--sat working beside them. Suddenly the latter started from her seat with a loud shriek, and threw herself into her mother's arms. On being questioned as to the cause of her agitation, she pointed to a sofa, and, weeping bitterly, declared she had seen descend upon it the figure of her elder sister, Rosalie, then on a visit to some relations at or near Havre. The countenance of the phantom was pale and death-stricken.--This occurred at 4 o'clock in the afternoon of the 17th September. Two days after, tidings arrived that Rosalie L — had been unhappily drowned in a boating excursion at Havre, at (it was affirmed) the precise moment of the appearance. As another instance, here is a circumstance minutely related by Monsieur M--, a retired French officer, in a letter to a friend: "Left an orphan at an early age, I was brought up under the care of a kind-hearted god-mother, who could scarcely have cherished me more had I been her own offspring. She resided at
Death of a gallant soldier. --"P. W. A.," the special correspondent of the Savannah Republican, thus writes in regard to the last moments of a gallant officer: Captain Plane, of the 6th Georgia, died on the night of the 17th of September, just after the battle. Aware that his wound was mortal, and that he was sicking rapidly, be sent the following touching lines to his wife: "Give love inexpressible to my dear wife, and kisses without number to my child. "Tell her I died like a soldier and an officer, and that if I had the same thing to do over I would do it again, that I was not afraid to die." His body was decently interred near Sharpsburg, and the grave marked by a head-board, with his name inscribed upon it.
Skirmish near Lafayette, Etc. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 17. --A special dispatch to the Intelligencer, dated 16th, from Resaca, states that heavy firing was heard Sunday, which proceeded from a skirmish nine miles north of Lafayette. The enemy was driven back by Stewart's artillery, Cheatham's division. No loss on our side. The enemy's loss was considerable, including thirty prisoners. On the same day Wheeler had a skirmish near Summerville, and drove the enemy back two and a half miles, capturing twenty prisoners. The enemy has a large force of mounted infantry in this neighborhood. The late movements in Wills Valley were only made with the intention of getting possession of Chattanooga, where Rosecrans is now fortifying, evidently not choosing to risk a battle. Hand cars are running to Cleveland, Tenn. All are sanguine.
From Charleston. Charleston, Sept. 17. --The equinoctial gale came on last night with considerable violence, and still continues. The monitors are not in sight this morning. All quiet. [second Dispatch.] Charleston, Sept. 17th. --The storm has continued with intervals all day.--Everything is perfectly quiet to-night. The enemy's fleet has withdrawn to smoother waters.

Headq'rs army East Tennessee, Wednesday evening, Sept. 17. It really seems to be the most difficult matter imaginable to get reliable news from this quarter. We get all sorts of rumors and reports from couriers, scouts, and the reliable gentleman, also, comes in to bear the burden of a portion of the blame for the many miraculous "yarns" we hear in this section as well as elsewhere in the broad limits of our Confederacy. Yesterday evening I telegraphed you from Bristol to the effect that our forces had advanced as far as within five miles of Greenville, Tenn., and that the enemy were reported evacuating East Tennessee. Indeed this was the news we had at these headquarters, until about 2 P. M., this day. It turns out that the enemy's pickets only fell back a short distance in front of our lines at Limestone, and from this fact the report originated in relation to the falling back. Yesterday morning they made another strong picket advance, and sharp skirmishing ensued in the v

confidential.] Headq'rs Camp near Darnestown, Sept. 16. Lieut.-Col. Ruger, commanding 3d Wisconsin regiment, on special service at Frederick: Sir: The Legislature of Maryland is appointed to meet in special session to morrow--Tuesday--September 17.. It is not impossible that the members, or a portion of them, may be deterred from meeting there on account of certain arrests recently made in Baltimore. It is also quite possible that on the first day of meeting the attendance of members ned will be placed on board a special train for Annapolis, where a steamer will await them. Everything in the execution of the orders is confided to your secrecy, discretion, and promptness. Copeland's report--Maryland Legislature, September 17. Frederick, Md., Sept. 17, 1861. Dear Sir: The arrests in Baltimore have entirely broken down and disorganized the secession element in the Legislature, and much less than a quorum have assembled.--Of the members present the larger num
the States and the liberties of the people in the future as in the past. * * * With the hearts of millions of freemen with them, the Democracy would again build up the shattered fragments of the Union and hand it down to the next generation as it was received from the last. An executive committee of one person from each State will be appointed; and it was resolved that the Democracy of the country are requested to meet at different cities and have mass ratification meetings on the 17th of September, the anniversary of the adoption of the Federal Constitution. With nine cheers for the ticket, the Convention adjourned, subject to the call of the National Convention. The Chronicle is very much out of humor with the Chicago nominations. It devotes its leader to a biography of McClellan. We give the concluding paragraph: The nomination of General McClellan will be most acceptable in the South among the enemies of the Republic. It will be perceived that it is hailed wit
Rumors — exchange of prisoners agreed on. Macon, September 17. --Rumors are rife to-day that Sherman has sent an informal request to Governor Brown, Vice-President Stephens, and H. V. Johnson, to come to Atlanta and confer with him upon the subject of peace. General Hood has relieved his chief of staff, Brigadier-General Shoup, of duty. Major Macon is now acting in that capacity. Five hundred exiled families have arrived in our lines from Atlanta. Their condition is most deplorable. A special exchange of two thousand prisoners has been agreed upon by Generals Hood and Sherman, and seven hundred Yankees will be sent forward to-night for that purpose.

Lundy, the member of the House of Delegates from the election district composed of the counties of Greensville and Sussex; therefore, I, William Smith, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, do hereby proclaim and make known that an election will be hold in said election district on the third Thursday of October next, for a delegate to fill said vacancy; and the sheriffs of the said counties of Greensville and Sussex are accordingly hereby required to cause such election to be held, each in his respective county, on the day above appointed.

had heard, and who they supposed would pass over that route on his way home. He, however, was far beyond their reach, and arrived safely in Richmond by the Central train last evening. The report that he reached his father's residence, in Amherst, on last Sunday, was therefore erroneous. It was reported yesterday evening that the raiders had again returned to Orange, and were threatening the lines of railroad communication. A Yankee schooner captured. On the night of the 17th of September, Acting Master John Maxwell, of the Confederate States navy, in connection with Acting Master Hines and Captain Moore and two men, attacked the Yankee schooner Jane F. Durfee, on Warwick river, capturing her, together with eight men. The vessel was bonded and the crew paroled. Warwick river is in Warwick county, Virginia, below York county. This exploit, successfully performed so far within the enemy's lines, reflects much credit upon its daring projectors. From Mobile. The e
